Texas is a BIG state

We stopped off in Deming NM to visit the SKP park, and to see our friends Jim and Kris Todd. We met them in Bushnell Fl last year when Marcia was working for the escapees as a camp host. They were the managers there at Sumter Oaks, and then we spent most of the summer with them at Raccoon Valley. It was really good to see them again, but they wanted Marcia to work for about 6 weeks there. I had to step in and decline the offer because it is just too dang cold there.

We did decide to stay an extra day because our friends Howie and Norah Glover were going to be there the next day. I made the sacrifice and suffered through the cold nights just so we could see them in person and not just pass them on I-10 somewhere in TX. We spent the evening playing with their new toy, a wii. Howie schooled us all in bowling.

The next morning we all left, (except Jim and Kris, they will be at the Dream Catcher RV Park until the middle of January) headed in opposite directions. Howie and Norah were headed to AZ and we were headed east, and then south to Southern Texas where we will be spending a month or two or three. Driving across Texas we saw a whole lot of nothing, and then we saw a whole lot more of nothing. I think we put on about 1200 miles since we entered Texas and we are almost to the very bottom now. It will be a long time before we get out of Texas.

I want to spend a few weeks down here in the bottom of TX, and then spend several weeks driving up the eastern side along the Gulf of Mexico. There is South Padre Island, North Padre Island, Rockport, Corpus Cristi, and a few other towns and places we want to visit while we are in this area.

Everyone that really knows me knows that a few COLD days can change my mind really quick, and if we don't like the weather here in Southern TX, or the weather along the coast, we could very easily skip a lot of places and head for the SOUTHERN MOST POINT IN THE US. KEY WEST FL. Remember all our plans and written on an Etch-a-Sketch.............
